This scene is right after Miles get demoted to second string. Each chapter is short with a clear purpose. Oct 13, Kyle rated it it was amazing.

He faces many deli-mas with his new coach, and some of his teammates are trying to pressure him into performance enhancing drugs. This was a good book because when I was reading it I liked how he interpreted the football players because to my knowledge, as a football player, is that everything he put in the book has happened in a locker room at one time or another. Miles likes the coach they have now but he steps down, the new coach is Stahl.

Miles later found out that some of his teammates were using steroids, even his best frie I gave this book CrackBack 5 stars because I love this book so much because it’s about football and I love the game of football.

So far this book is about a typical high school teenager who loves to play football. That was the absolute worst part about it; the fact that the writing was sooo terrible. During his ctackback season, Miles discovers Zack is using steroids. Fans of football and the movie Varsity Blues will find themselves stressing along with junior, Miles Manning, as he watches what he thought was going to be a state-bound football season fall apart along with his personal life.

He starts to play the kids who are bigger and stronger. The style of descriptive was very effective in explaining the plot and many events of the story.

When we get into the story Miles starts to believe he in untouchable, and no one can take his spot in sports or in life. This is why i recommend this book to anyone that loves sports. I feel like the author used a thrilling style.

For example Miles got an interception in the begining of the game and at the end of the game the score was and coach Stahl said to I am still reading crackback by Jhon Coy. Miles is naturally a very good football player. It sometimes felt like I was in each game because John Coy uses very good detail.

This was an important aspect to the book for me because if the book does not move good and I get bored right away I would feel as if I am going to put the book down and never be able to read it again.

One night there was a game where miles made a mistake, which cost them the game, so coach stahl benched him. Everyone was pressuring him about the team and how to keep them in check.

I liked this book because I play football and I can see myself or my friends getting into many of the situations and like Miles I would not know how to handle it. Football is his life, and his family, especially his dad, is pinning its hopes on him.

Jan 29, Livingston rated it really liked it. And let me just say, that this book is literally the worst book I have ever read.

Miles tried to make a decision because he knows that everyone was depending on him. When he is in the prime of his high school football career the team takes a bad turn. Flat and Round characters.

It had absolutely no sentence fluency whatsoever. This book takes a lot of twists and turns th Did you know that in a survey concluded that over 1 million people in the US have used steroids. Crackback is about a Miles Manning who plays football at his high school team and runs into some problems.
